A statement on the death of Kate Vokes and her son Archie


As we return back to the office this new year, we are aware that you may have seen the news over the Christmas period about the death of our colleague Kate. Kate Vokes was a director at Shared Health and at Focused Care, and chair of the Oglesby Charitable Trust, who last week died in a tragic accident with her 22 year old son, Archie.

Kate was a champion of great causes and was a positive and can-do inspirational leader. Her impact across Greater Manchester through business, the arts and charitable sector will be greatly missed. Kate’s passion for supporting vulnerable families has been knitted through the values of Shared Health and Focused Care. The legacy, work and hope she started is pervasive and is felt as it continues today across our city region. 

All our prayers and thoughts are with the family in this incredibly difficult time.
